From: http://www.museumofhoaxes.com

In honor of the finger in the Wendy's chili being declared a hoax by the police, here's a round-up of some gross things that have been found in food by restaurant patrons (including the recent Wendy's incident). Three of these complaints actually turned out to be legitimate:

Phony Finger: In January 1987 two men in California informed police that they had found a human finger in a can of Juanita's Menudo soup. The 'finger' turned out to be a piece of tripe (which is the muscular lining of beef stomach) carved to look like a finger. The men had placed the object in the soup themselves.

Chicken McNoggin: On the night of November 27, 2000 a woman in Newport, News Virginia bought a box of chicken wings at a local McDonalds (the store was test-marketing fried chicken wings). Upon taking the meal home, she discovered an unpleasant surprise: a breaded, fried chicken head was included with the wings. She immediately contacted the media and a lawyer. Reporters who examined the head said that the batter on it did look exactly like the batter on the wings, so it didn't seem to be something she had created herself. However the woman refused to turn the head over to McDonalds for examination. Whether she ever did sue the company, I don't know. Lawyers doubted she would have received much in the way of a settlement, since she found the head before biting down into it.

Clam Condom: In Feb. 2002 a woman was eating a bowl of clam chowder at a McCormick and Schmick's seafood restaurant in Irvine, CA when she bit down on something rubbery. She thought it was a piece of calamari, but when she spit it out into her napkin she discovered that it was a condom. She immediately complained and the restaurant manager took the condom from her. The woman later sued and won an undisclosed settlement from the restaurant. The restaurant itself tried to sue the supplier of the clam chowder, but a judge ruled in favor of the supplier.

Fried Mouse: In September 2003 a man was eating a three-piece combo meal at a Popeye's Fried Chicken in Baltimore when he bit down into a deep-fried mouse that had somehow gotten lodged in between the skin and the meat of the chicken. Police said that the complaint seemed to be legitimate. That restaurant had been cited for rodent infestations in the past.

Soup Mouse: A woman and her son were eating at a Cracker Barrel restaurant in May 2004 when the woman found a mouse in her bowl of vegetable soup. She immediately began screaming, prompting many of the other restaurant patrons to leave. While it investigated the incident, Cracker Barrel stopped serving vegetable soup at all 497 of its restaurants nationwide. Police eventually concluded that the woman had placed the mouse in the soup herself in an attempt to extort money from the restaurant. An autopsy had shown that the mouse had died from a skull fracture, not from drowning in soup.

Fried Baby Foot: In July 2004 a family in Durham, North Carolina found what appeared to be a breaded, fried baby's foot in their frozen chicken dinner bought at a local supermarket. The police later identified the object as a piece of dough that a prankster had shaped to look like a baby's foot. The police concluded that tampering took place before the frozen chicken pieces arrived at the supermarket.

Chili Finger: In March 2005 Anna Ayala sat down to eat a bowl of Chili at a Wendy's restaurant in California but encountered an unpleasant surprise. She bit down on something hard, spit it out, and discovered that it was a human finger. She claims that she then began vomiting. Wendy's launched an internal investigation, but couldn't identify anyone involved in the preparation of the food who was missing a finger. The company also offered a $100,000 reward for any information about how the finger could have gotten into the chili. Meanwhile the police launched their own investigation, and a month later arrested Ayala herself after concluding

I would like to add to the list:

At my old school there ALWAYS used to be small white hairs in the American Chop Suey.

It sorta became a ritual between my friends and I to find them as we ate it..but it was pretty gross.

AT LEAST they were white - you could see them

much worse are the wirey-curly-short-black ones that you don't find out about until they're stuck in your teeth - or much worse stuck in your throat

We have this programme where the food police or whatever go into resturants and check out the food. They took these won tons away to be analized and found that they were 80% cat food!

The other day my brother went to McDonald's, So I asked him to get me a small flurry. There was a shard of sharp plastic in it. I seem to recall asking for an OREO flurry, Not a PLASTIC flurry. I don't normally eat from that place, And now I NEVER will again.

Half an alsatian in the freezer of a Chinese restaurant in Douglas Rd, Hounslow, Middlesex - needless to say, it's no longer trading.

I was eating at Whataburger and when I took a bite at the burger, it was slimy. I asked the manager if I could get another one. He looked at the slimy one and he got mad at the people working there because they served me a raw one.

Here's one I've heard, although I'm more than slightly inclined to doubt the veracity:
A woman went into a KFC and asked for a chicken burger with no mayonnaise. She got the burger, bit into it and was dismayed to find mayonnaise. She went to the manager, who said that he had personally instructed the person putting together the burgers to hold the mayo on that one, which they swore they had. Closer inspection revealed the mayonnaise to be the product of a big, pus-filled tumour in the chicken fillet. The lady wasn't very impressed.

Ewww!

A long time ago some of my cousins (with my aunt) and one of their friends went on a camping trip and stopped at KFC for lunch. That night they all got VERY sick and were sent to the hospital. It turned out that they had severe food posioning from their lunch.
